Do you like fun Eurovision stuff for free? Well this is your opportunity to get something unique in your mail. We are going to raffle off the Eurovision’s 100 Craziest Moments book, the Good, the Bad and the Wurst. It was written by Geoff Tibballs.

For 60 years the Eurovision Song Contest has existed in a parallel universe where a song about the construction of a hydro-electric power station is considered cutting-edge pop, where half a dozen warbling Russian grandmothers are considered Saturday night entertainment, where a tune repeating the word ‘la’ 138 times is considered a winner, and where Australia is considered part of Europe

During those sixty years we have witnessed scandals: in 1957, Denmark’s Birthe Wilke and Gustav Winckler enjoyed an outrageously long 13-second kiss because the stage manager forgot to say ‘cut’ during the live broadcast. We have witnessed national outrage: the 1976 Greek entry was a savage indictment of Turkish foreign policy in Cyprus. But most have all we have witnessed silly costumes, terrible lyrics and performers as diverse as Celine Dion and Dustin the Turkey.

This book chronicles the 100 craziest moments in the history of Eurovision – the drag acts, the bad acts, the nul points heroes and the night in Luxembourg when the floor manager warned the audience not to stand up while they applauded because they might be shot by security forces. It captures some of the magic from this yearly event that continues to beguile and bemuse in equal measure.
